Just wanted to complain a little. We had our engagement pics taken this past Sunday. We actually had a great time doing it since our photographer is a really fun guy. I thought I looked decent and was really excited especially since he was going on and on about how great the shots were coming out, etc. I even took some photos earlier that day after makeup trial and I looked better than these. Really just worried that I am going to look horrible in the wedding pics. Seems like all of these poses are just so unflattering, makes me look frumpy and bigger than I am.
He is nice enough to put up a few pics on facebook before sending the entire disc so hopefully there will be some better shots to come. These are the best from the 10 he gave us. I am sure these are the ones he feels are the ‘best’ so worried to see the rest. I think the bathroom sign is funny. The dandilion pic is an example of what I mean, weird expressions, odd positioning. What do you think, be honest.

Honestly? The dandelion one is the only one that stands out as odd… the others look fantastic! I would say try not to worry, there will be a lot more to come.

I like all of them, really. Don’t worry! Wait until you see all of them.

The pictures themselves are fine, although I think he should have gotten more closeups of your faces.
But you don’t look fat/frumpy/weird/ugly/some other unflattering word. You look fine!

You look very pretty! I am not sold on the bathroom sign one as a photo, but I don’t think its you I think it is just the pose.

I don’t think they look bad! Are there more coming? I do agree with PP that it would have been nice to get some close ups!

The bathroom one makes me giggle. I think the pictures are beautiful. Your photographer seemed to be going for a very artistic feel. You’re gorgeous! I especially love the piggy back photo and the way y’all are just shining at each other. I bet the rest of the photos will be just as beautiful.

He likely sent you the ones he thought were the most unique/interesting/appealing to him. As a professional photographer he probably takes the same posed ones every time because that is what a couple wants, and he probably gets less excited about those.
I would imagine the more traditional ones will be coming later. It’s funny that you single out the dandelion one as an example of a bad picture, in my opinion (as a semi-pro photographer, not that it really matters), that is the best of the lot. FWIW, I don’t think the pictures look unflattering or frumpy, and you photographer looks like he knows what he’s doing. I would be very surprised if there are not more getting sent along that you like, you just may not have the same taste as him as to what makes a great photograph of you.

I like them. I think the dandelion one is really neat, and if i had a choice of which to frame, it would probably be that one.

Sorry you don’t like your pics… but, I don’t think they are all that bad like you say.
The bathroom one is odd but the rest is fantastic!

Aww, I love all those shots. Especially the piggy back one!

ooooo I really LIKE the dandilion one! All of them are fine, but that one is pretty cool.
The bathrooms one is odd yes and silly, nothing wrong with that for a few shots.

Thanks everyone! I appreciate all of the comments and input! Yes, I will be getting more, just got a 10 pic facebook post by the photographer which I think is great of him to do. I love the artistic aspects of the pics, just wasn’t sure about how I looked. Hard not to be critical of oneself! I’ll post more when I get them 🙂
